Meet the Fundraiser for The Clark Family!
This year, a very special, strong, and sparkly girl, Ellery Clark, fought a valiant fight against a rare, aggressive cancer. In late November, our world, and her neighbourhoods in Hamilton, and East Toronto became a little less shimmery, as her fight ended, and she passed on. Ellery and her family have shown such tremendous strength and grace throughout their fight, and those of us who have followed along have had the privilege of accompanying this amazing group of people on a very hard journey.
Through the Clarks' journey, many of us also learned that pediatric cancer research currently receives less than 5% of the funds raised for cancer research. Now that this part has come to an end, we’d like to find some ways to hold them close in their grief and support them in what comes next. Join The East End’s Blessing of Unicorns in a sharing some love and support for The Clark family and Ellery's Army with a special reminder of strong, magical Ellery.
This graphic was designed by Liz Mac for Ellery, to be used for fundraising for the family and for childhood cancers. The ornament was created by Stacey Chong, of Toronto Yoga Co. Suggested minimum donation of $15. All proceeds will go to the Clark family.
During the Holiday Market at Gotamago, the unicorn ornaments will be available for a suggested donation of $15; plus, each of our vendors will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Clark family.
